Handcuffed

“You have the right to
remain silent” they said,

but behind my back I was
still holding onto my pen.

While letters scatter,
barely making words

words that lost meaning
for abandoned emotions.

Silence means acceptance,
so I waited for the verdict.

The one that would put me behind
bars, while my pen runs free..

I never pleaded innocence, for
the jury have rested their case..

    A nice, elegantly written little piece you have here. I liked the metaphor, save from the PENultimate (sorry :D) stanza which I don’t feel is completely necessary. Well done :)
